Fall Changes.

Hello everybody! Thanks for following along the last couple of months as I have tried out new themes, names & recipes. I have been working on changing the name of this blog for sometime now. Although Project Roots served me well for awhile; to be honest, I'm not quite sure where it came from. It was a conversation with a friend of mine when we were talking about making a completely...

Tofu Omeletes

Try & try & try & try again. At least that's what it took to finally make a tofu omelet. Last night, my friend Sasha, a fellow veg & blogger, crashed on the pullout couch. We tucked in early after scarfing down some late night leftovers from my meal with my good friends Bridget & Ian. It seems as people are coming together over food at my house these days. Whether I am...

White Bean Hummus Recipe

I remember when I first discovered my food processor in high school. I turned everything in our kitchen into a puree or a nut butter. I spent an entire summer dedicated to this process. I no longer had access to a food processor at college & lost the obsession. Throughout this moving process I have tried to buy as little as possible for the purpose of being both environmentally conscious and...

Last night, I gave her the nickname, Shadow, because somehow she is always right behind me. The air is heavy with a storm today, and I'm looking forward to the...

I am also a complete novice at bread making so if...

Slow & Steady

It has been a busy weekend. I spent Saturday and Sunday chaperoning Hike for Hunger for the Boston University Community Service Center. That's right folks - I am old enough to be a chaperone. I remember the days when college students seemed old  & chaperones were just another extension of my parents. Here I am - almost 23 - a recent graduate, chaperoning a trip. I have to say, it was better...
